Teen mom says she's a mass murderer

(Continued)

Miranda Barbour said in her jailhouse interview that she became associated with a satanic cult when she was 13 and living in Alaska with her mother. She said she came under the influence of the cult leader and that he helped her kill her first victim.

“It was in an alley and he shot him,” she said. “Then he said to me that it was my turn to shoot him. I hate guns; I don’t use guns. I couldn’t do it so he came behind me and he took his hands and put them on top of mine and we pulled the trigger. And then from there I just continued to kill.”

Eventually, she said, she moved to North Carolina, had a baby and sought “to start over and forget everything I did. I knew something was bad inside me and the satanic beliefs brought it out. I embraced it.”
